Throwback Thursday: Memories from Mexico on an iPhone case!

It’s no secret that I’m addicted to Instagram. Therefore, it should come as no big surprise that I found a way to show off some of my favorite photos from The Other Side of The Tortilla, my travels in Mexico and other assorted Mexico-related things I’ve found here in Chicago. I’ve been loving the #ThrowbackThursday (or #tbt) hashtag where people post photo memories on Instagram and Twitter and I’ve been playing along when I remember on Thursdays, but I want to make it a more consistent thing.

While trying to figure out some more fun ways to use my Instagram feed, I was super excited to discover Casetagram, a service that lets you create a smartphone case with your Instagram photos. I created this Tortilla-themed phone case for my iPhone and I can’t wait for it to arrive! Some of the places I included photos of from travels to Mexico (from top to bottom): Diego Rivera’s studio in San Angel, a doorway in San Miguel de Allende, the bugambilias I fell in love with at Hacienda Galindo and last, but not least, El Ángel de la Independencia in Mexico City.

Then, of course, I also included some favorite foods, such as guacamole, tacos al pastor, flor de calabaza, buñuelos, conchas, pozole and molletes. I wished there were more spaces to put more of my favorite things and places, but I guess I might just have to make another one!

  • If you were going to make a case for your phone with Casetagram, what photos from Mexico or what Mexican foods would you include on yours? What places or things are so unforgettable to you that you’d want everyone to see?
